Description - Kafka's Last Love by Kathi Diamant

In this gripping literary detective story, Kathi Diamant brings to light the amazing woman who captured Kafka's heart and kept his literary flame alive for decades. This was Dora Diamant, an independent spirit who fled her Polish Hasidic family to pursue her Zionist dreams, who persuaded Kafka to leave his parents and live with her in Berlin the year before he died. Based on original sources and interviews, including never-before-seen material from the Comintern and Gestapo archives and Dora's newly discovered diary, and letters, Kafka's Last Love illuminates the life of a literary "wife" who, like Vra Nabokov and Nora Joyce, is a remarkable woman in her own right.
